Yard Report

Early summer, and the flowers are fantastic.

The daylilies are just beginning to bloom.

The hydrangeas are reaching full bloom. I'm not one to use all the fancy stuff that turns them all one color. I like the variety.

And, for Marti, progress report on the helleborine in my yard.

I see your garden and zone are about 3 weeks a head of Nova Scotia(at least my area)...and we are ahead of usual schelude this year...everything is wonky this year....beautiful hellorbine...new to me so I looked it up on the net.

Good Morning Louise! Your flowers do, indeed, look fantastic! Ever see a gold color Hydrangea? I don't suppose there is such a thing, but I think if there was, I would love to have one here in OZ!

Love your hydrangeas. I just have one, Annabelle pure white but the blooms are huge.

Your yellow daylily looks like one I have, (forgotten the name). Are the blooms huge?

We are about 3 weeks behind here in areas of Washington State, particularly the upper eleveations.

So excited for your Helleborine. Let it bloom the full cycle and perhaps it will return more robust next year.

This is a plant you need a macro for

Sophie, we're ahead here too, by about two weeks. We had a crazy warm spring.
Sharon, never heard of a gold hydrangea, but, give them time, they'll develop one.
Marnie, yes, that yellow daylily runs four to five inches across. I don't know the name, either, it was given to me as "a beautiful, big yellow one."
Upupaepops, my camera has macro capability. I'm just waiting for the thing to actually bloom because I'm going to have to get down on the ground to photograph it. Getting down is doable, I just hope I can get back up.

Your hydrangeas are gorgeous. They were my grandmother's favorite flowers and I always think of her when I see them.--Inger

Pretty, pretty! We have one of those dark maroon daylillies here. Yummy (burp) hee hee.

That yellow daylily glows. I might try some next year. We are at 6,800', so gardening is challenging. But daylilies might actually grow here.

Me again. Louise, you asked about Hunter/Jumpers out here in the West. It's by far the biggest discipline here, but mostly for the younger generation.
